Emily Tepe
The Edible Landscape

‚ÄčLearn how to create a garden of vegetables, fruits, and flowers with Emily Tepe, the author of The Edible Landscape, on Thursday, March 13, from 7-8 p.m. at the Wescott Library.

As the fresh food revolution sweeps the nation, more and more people are seeking out delicious offerings from local growers. People have started growing food in the most unlikely places, including rooftops, abandoned parking lots, and tiny balconies and backyards on average city streets.

Individuals and families are taking up the trowel and discovering that gardening can be fun, fulfilling, and, ultimately, delicious. Far from sacrificing their ornamental flowers, creative gardeners can discover the joy of growing food in beautiful, thoughtful gardens overflowing with both color and flavor.

Creating an attractive and productive garden in your small space might seem impossible, but Tepe will give examples of some wonderful things that can be done, from interesting plant combinations to unique structures and planting beds.
